A sense of belonging, infinite opportunities and unlimited possibilities is what it feels like to be a child at St Peter’s 2-8.
We are an award-winning IAPS and HMC Pre-prep school and nursery for girls and boys aged 2-8, offering a warm welcome into the St Peter's School, York, family. We were named Pre-prep School of the Year and Independent School of the Year at the Tes Independent School Awards 2021.
We are proud to be fun, proud to be different, and proud to put the children at the centre of everything we do. Our dynamic and innovative approach, stimulating learning environment, inspirational teaching staff, and outstanding pastoral care have been recognised nationally, with many state and independent schools visiting to learn more.
We teach the ‘whole child’ through a thematic approach, ensuring they have a genuine thirst and love of learning. We are welcoming and inspiring, creative and forward-thinking, providing an outstanding learning environment and endless opportunities for adventure and discovery.
We aim to nurture happy, curious, motivated, bold and adventurous children, unafraid to embrace life and seek new adventures. Children who leave St Peter's 2-8 are rounded individuals who are well prepared for an exciting future on the next stage of their educational journey at St Peter’s 8-13.
St Peter's 2-8 showcases everything an independent pre-prep school should offer: an outstanding innovative and broad curriculum, which encourages curiosity in an ever-changing world.
Something enormously exciting is happening here - we can completely understand why St Peter's 2-8 has a national reputation...These happy, very engaged, active children are extremely fortunate to start their school life here.
My children love going to school and are absolutely thriving. They are incredibly lucky.
My daughter loves coming to school... She feels included and I feel there’s a caring community willing to help our children learn and thrive.
All staff that I come across are motivated and enthusiastic... Teachers inspire children and it feels like an exciting and thriving place.
The school is fully connected, communication is outstanding, and children are put first. It is clear to me that the teachers do an incredible job and put in a great deal of effort behind the scenes to make things great.
The pastoral care is outstanding. There is nothing more we would ask for or want in this regard. The school has got to know our son very well in a short space of time.
If you would like to visit St Peter's you can be assured of a warm welcome. Join us for our Open Events to explore our facilities, meet our friendly staff and experience the school's unique atmosphere.
